Interregnum: The Enemy Within 976 Common Era: King Aethelred is dying. After sixty years of ruling the Kingdom of Tyran with an iron fist, the vultures have begun to circle. With no legitimate heir to take the King's place, the nobles have started vying with each other to place their own preferred candidate on the throne. In the countryside, the peasants at last spy a chance to throw off the shackles of the old order and create the Kingdom anew. Yet they are not the only ones seeking change. Outside the kingdom's borders, the nation of Karnak readies its war machine. The two nations have cultivated a festering hatred for each other which stretches over centuries, and now the Golden Emperor of that desert land sees an opportunity to rid himself of this thorn in his side once and for all. To the north, the Dwarven Kingdoms high in the Northron Mountains watch events with avaricious eyes while they ponder how best to turn this situation to their advantage. In the forests of the west, the Elves look on in dismay. They know what the consequences of war would be, and have no desire to become embroiled in human affairs. The Queen of the Elven Kingdoms struggles with a dilemma, however: should she and her people sit on the sidelines and risk letting the upcoming storm consume the continent, or should the Elves intervene in the world of Men and risk imperilling their own existence? Into this world of treachery and uncertainty the players are thrown. A world on the brink of war, a world where friend and enemy are often indistinguishable, a world where death may strike at any moment... This is the premise for Interregnum: The Enemy Within. Players, should they decide to take part, may choose to play peasants or nobles or anything in between. The only restrictions on characters are: a) they should be drawn from the above races and nations alone. b) character classes should be in keeping with the time period i.e. early medieval. Anachronism should be avoided at all costs (in other words, no muskets, crossbows or kung-fu moves). And that's about it. If anyone's interested, sign up here. If not, I'll cry myself to sleep.
